The Historic Stockyards meets the expectations of visitors to Ft Worth. There is so much to see and do, including The Herd being driven down Exchange St. twice a day by real cowboys! There are many good places to eat Texas food, casual or elegant....More

Spent several hours here and totally enjoyed it! Sat on a cow, fed some animals, did a bit of shopping and had a ride in buggy pulled by a horse! Saw cowboys. It's a must see place.

This is a fun place to spend a few hours. There are touristy shops, places to eat, Texas longhorns, cowboys, a covered wagon and stage coach you can ride, a petting zoo and other things to do.

You know it is a put on , when you realize they are going to drive cattle down a street with cars parked on both sides. How lame! The long horn steers, yes steers, no bulls, no cows, no calves, nothing to stir the mix...More

We absolutely loved spending a day at the Fort Worth Stockyards. They have a cattle drive at 11.30am and 4pm - definitely worth watching the long horns herded through the main road. Watched the gun fight show which was enjoyable although it went on for...More

So where should you take your visitors when they want to see quintessential Texas??? The FW Stockyards, of course. Where else can you see real cowboys on real horses meandering down the street behind several longhorn cattle? There's western clothes- hats (custom steamed) and exotic...More

We are going there this Tues - Thurs for the NBAA show and I was wondering if you can walk to the Stockyards from downtown and if so how long is the walk? Any recommendations on good eating places?

It's a little over a mile hike from the stockyards to old downtown Fort Worth. I enjoyed the steakhouse in old Fort Worth but they do have several places to eat there. There is a little mall there where we ate very good... More

By taxi or car, you're looking at about 15 minutes. Not really possible on foot.
